Barney's is a terrific little chain of burger restaurants. The Steak fries are crack to me. This is a frequent father-daughter place for me. Very kids friendly.

The cili bowl is good and value for money. Not so sure about other stuff. The salad was just ok and the burgers perhaps not gourmet, but good. The kid in the group liked the mac and cheese!

Really oily fried veggies and curly fries. Taste like old oil. Average burger, bad garden burger. Bad execution on the sautees and toppings
